      I am in process of doing a 16v 2.0l conversion, and was pricing out all the ABF components (timing belt, covers) and was thinking about the MK4 2.0l block. Don't need the 1.8l 16v intermediate shaft and oil pump and drive systems, the MK4 has holes for the MK3 rear engine mount, the distributor is on the 16 head.... What doesn't work about it?? I have some 9a pistons to throw in, you could use a 2.0l timing belt and covers... Would all the MK3 accessories fit on the MK4 bracket and fit with the head?

      Has anyone actually done this before on here?

      Function over form! But it doesn't hurt to look good...

      it has been done many times. The AEG/AEZ also have a internal crank trigger wheel, which makes using SEM easier.

      Search and you will find a thread that talks about this. It is a couple pages long.

      its this link:!-READ-THIS...

      yes yes yes, it is as easy as you think i almost put one together once but had other plan come up. i guess where you loose out is the stroke of the aba but whatever i think that can be made up by running a 16v on me7 dbw and tuning it if your capable of doing so its pretty close to sem if not better because of the facotry options and signals for gauges.
